Catalysis Science & Technology is a new multidisciplinary journal targeting on both the fundamental science and technological aspects of catalysis and contains a mix of fundamental, applied, experimental and computational work, relevant to both academic and industrial scientists. Dr. Richard Pike, chief executive of the Royal Society of Chemistry, made the first public announcement of the launch of Catalysis Science & Technology during the Japan-UK Symposium: Catalysis for a Sustainable World, held at the Chemistry Centre, Burlington House, London, UK
Catalysis Science & Technology has opened for article submissions from October 2010 and will publish high impact reviews, communications and full papers, with issue one scheduled for publication in Spring 2011.
